On the farm
Harvested around peak maturity, these peas are crisp, firm, and bright, bringing a special palate in both color and flavor. Maroon pods turn purple right at the point of maximum maturity. Both colors can be used.
On the table
Both the maroon and purple pod add an unusual splash of color and each has it’s own taste.
* Maroon Snaps are rich and nutty.
* Purple Snaps offer a sharp kick and a colorful punch.

The Royal Snap Pea is a full season snap pea with strings that produces a variety of maroon and purple peas.
In addition to colored pods harvesting the whole plant is something to consider. Chefs have made pea stock, pea syrup, pea flavored ice cream and salads from the branches and leaves of our varieties. Peas are most vibrant in the juvenile stage when seeds are beginning to fill out the pod.
